Season 2022

"Championes! Championes!"

Dukinfield A

&

Brookdale B

DUKINFIELD 'A are the new  Oldham and District Golf League A Division Champions after beating Crompton & Royton 'A' 4.5 v. 0.5 in the play-off final at Denton.

Dukinfield last lifted the title three years out of four in 2007, 2009 and 2010  and captain Colin McWiggin called on a blend of youth and experience to triumph again for their eighth league crown.
It proved too much for Ben Gledhill's men - reaching the play-off final for the first time - as they went down 5&4, 4&3, 4&3 and 2&1 with the second match called in as a dead rubber when still level after the first extra hole..

 

Brookdale 'B' completed the league and cup double with a 4-1 over Ashton 'B' in their B Division play-off final played at Blackley.

All the matches were close as they came into the final six holes but  Brookdale surged through with 4&3, 3&1, 1up and 19th-hole successes with Ashton's sole success coming on the final green. 
Vic Scantlebury's men become the fourth club in the last eight years to do the 'B'  Division league and cup  double - following on from Blackley (2014), Ashton (2015) and Dukinfied (2017).
This is the first time the Woodhouses club has won the 'B' Division in 13 years and their fourth success in total.

The ODGL league and cup trophies will be presented to teams at the Brian Atack Team Championship which is to be held at Oldham on Sunday, September 25.
Club captains are reminded to send their pairings to fixtures secretary David Whaley as soon as possible.

Welcome to the Oldham and District Golf League (founded 1973)

The League was conceived as an opportunity for local golfers to play competitively against other golf clubs in the local area and at the same time develop camaraderie between them. The intention is to enjoy good golf courses with sporting companions in a friendly but competitive atmosphere.

The League was composed of 2 Divisions from the outset but the Cup competition was not introduced until 1980. Initially, the League was based on singles matches in the A Division and the first Secretary was A L Davidson (Saddleworth GC). In those early years, the league was less competitive and League Tables were not produced until the last match of the season had been played! In 1982, Barry Matthews (League Secretary) and Carl Cunnelly (Fixtures Secretary) ran the League on a more organised and formal basis until 2005. In 1991 the end of season Brian Atack Tournament was added to compete for individual and team trophies.

Since 2005, the trio of Saddleworth's John Walsh (chairman), Ashton's Brendan Kennedy (secretary) and Werneth's David Whaley (fixtures secretary) guided the league through an expansion into a four division format with the addition of teams from North Manchester, Blackley, Crompton & Royton and Castle Hawk. The league changed further in 2017 with the introduction of promotion and relegation between the two 'A' divisions and Howard Lawton (North Manchester) took over as League Secretary.
